Nike’s Air Force 1 continues to see renewed interpretations of its classic silhouette, recently embodying a bold tie-dye design to a collaboration with G-Dragon’s PEACEMINUSONE.

Now the Swoosh takes the revamp one step further by replacing the heel with an elastic strap, creating a sandal hybrid that looks similar to Crocs. The Air Force 1 VTF comes in a sleek black colorway with gold and metallic details around the logo, branding and sole. Maintaining elements of its time-honored form, the footwear features smooth leather along the upper and retains the design of its original ‘82 sole unit with cushioning Air Sole technology.

The VTF comes in Big Kids’ sizing and retails for $90 USD, available to purchase now at Nike.com. For more sneaker news, check out our roundup of the best footwear releases this week.
